Helloooo!!! I am Jordy and I am READY for FUN! All of the time! I love to play and eat and cuddle. Scratches behind my ears…I am in heaven! I was once running around as a stray in Philadelphia. My back legs move a little different than other dogs and when I was found I was very thin, had worms (not the kind of friends I am into, by the way) and my back legs were weak so when I went to the shelter, I was at risk for euthanasia. I had never heard that word before and when I found out what it meant, I was like, “whaaaatttt?” Who would want me to not be alive anymore??? Good thing an awesome human friend at the shelter loved me and wanted me to be safe. He contacted Finding Shelter and voila! I was rescued!
Now, some refer to me as “special needs.” Yup, I am super special and I needs me a home, but that is not what they are talking about. They are talking about how my back legs are kind of wonky and how I dribble pee sometimes, especially when I am excited. Yup. I just put it out there. I pee my pants. I don’t really mind. It is what it is BUT I try my best and go to the bathroom outside whenever I am let out and I don’t complain when I have to wear a belly band.
Sometimes people mind when dogs have tinkle accidents, but let’s just focus on the special part of special needs unless you are talking about how especially cute I am, OK? There are all kind of reasons that I might pee my pants but the neurologist says it could be congenital or I could have been hurt sometime before I was rescued.
I don’t remember anything prior to being warm and cozy and loved in my foster home. Since I have been here, they fixed me up when I had an infection, they buy my special food to help me stay healthy and they continue to try to figure out what can help me not pee my pants. Most of all, they keep me clean and healthy and I have dog friends to play with, bones to chew and love to give. It is exactly what I want in a forever home only one that is mine all mine. I am a good boy, tons of fun and very “manageable” (makes me sound very important, huh) so why not take a chance on me, Jordy!!!
All dogs will go through a transition period after finding a new home and may need a “refresher course” in house-breaking.
